Tasting note: Deep amber / bright copper. Beautifully integrated aromas of honey, stewed pear, beeswax and fresh, pure malt. Second pass finds hints of bounty bar and cigar box. Superb delivery is buttery, almost oily, with more orchard fruitiness and spice entering. Firm and full bodied. Brilliant balance. Possibly more American oak influence here than other bottlings? Rounds off with late barley sugar, counterpointed by fine, drying tannins and ends just as appealing as it began. 15-17 years is clearly a tipping point for this distillery. Classic. 43% Alc./Vol.
